New, comments

In a new move, the league is creating a show that will be televised on TNT this June.

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at San Antonio Spurs Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA announced Tuesday afternoon something new: its first-ever awards show.

The show is slated for Monday, June 26, 2017 and will be televised by TNT. Each postseason award (Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year, Coach of the Year, etc.) will be announced during the show, as opposed to throughout the summer, as in years past.

This means, that the final week of the NBA season will be pretty jam-packed: The Finals, then the awards show, then the draft, then free agency season.

The host and site yet to be announced.
